Jewelry Care – Tips how to keep them as new.
Here’s some Jewelry care tips!
Most of our jewelry are handmade product and these jewelry also known as costume jewelry. The components, stone even the chain are put together by hand. Hence,they can sometimes be slightly different in colour, size and pattern of the material and embellishment.
Costume jewelry is made of materials that are less valuable than fine jewelry. They usually feature glass, beads, and synthetic stones rather than precious gems. Our metal pieces are usually brass, steel, and gold or silver plated unless stated otherwise. Therefore,the finish on plated jewelry may fade progressively over time from wear and tear. You may be able to prevent this by taking a few precautions in the care of your jewelry.
Always avoid contact with chemicals‚ such as hair spray, perfume‚ lotions‚ household cleansers, pool and sea water, and so on. You can help avoid these things by putting your jewelry on last when getting ready to go out. It is also best to remove rings before washing your hands.
Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe your jewelry pieces after wearing them to remove natural body oils, sweat or residue. If your jewelry comes into contact with water, it is recommended that you dry it with a soft cloth or tissue, as moisture can damage surfaces and cause them to rust or become pitted.
Gold and silver plated jewelry will also eventually tarnish or discolor if left out in the open air. To prevent this from happening, store your pieces in a cool, dry place, such as a jewelry box or case with the lid closed. You will find that your purchases come in individual see-through bags as it is an easy way for you to store, organise and find your jewelry, as well as prevent tarnishing.
